Since arriving to Buffalo, Beane has helped create a winning culture and built a solid perennial playoff roster in a short amount of time. In his first three seasons, he has constructed two playoff rosters with a chance a chance to clinch a third this week at Bills Stadium. In 2019, he helped Buffalo earn its first 10-win season since 1999.
Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula issued the following statement on the announcement.
“Brandon is an outstanding leader, and he has brought a great level of stability throughout our organization. One of the things we appreciate and respect about Brandon is that he is very thorough in his decision-making process. No decision he makes comes without a great deal of study and research. We appreciate his strong communication skills, and he works extremely well with us, with Sean and with all levels of the organization. We are happy to extend his contract and to have Brandon and Sean leading our football team for many years to come.”
In Beane’s first NFL Draft, he negotiated several trades that resulted in two first round picks while keeping all their 2019 draft capital. He drafted quarterback Josh Allen with the seventh overall pick and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds with the 16th overall pick. Allen, a draft pick that some were skeptical of, is having a season that stands out amongst other quarterbacks in his 2018 draft class. The three-time AFC Offensive Player of the Week ranks top 10 in passing yards, touchdowns, completion percentage, passer rating and more. Edmunds made it to the Pro Bowl in just his second season in 2019 and is known as one of the most talented young middle linebackers in the league.
